Work Programme

Decision Maker: Highways and Transport Committee

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


Consideration was given to the work programme.


Mrs S Baxter, the Democratic Services Officer advised of the following amendments to the work programme:-

  • The Vehicle Restraint System Strategy and Skid Resistance Strategy as complimentary documents were to be presented for approval within the Speed Management Strategy report – September 2022.  The title would be updated to reflect this amendment.
  • The updated Asset Management Policy, Asset Management Strategy, Highway Infrastructure Asset Management Plan and Resilient Network Strategy to form a single report seeking approval of these interrelated policies.  It was noted that the approval of the documents was important in relation to evidencing the Council’s self-assessment to level 3 with the DfT i.e. securing maximum amount of additional maintenance funding.  Officers were in the process of assessing whether a report would come to either the November 2022 or January 2023 meeting.

Whilst the inclusion in the work programme of the review of the Ward Member Budget scheme was welcomed, concerns were raised that the deadline for the approval of all submitted schemes was 30 June 2022.  It was requested that officers be asked to consider extending the deadline.

The Chair agreed to liaise with officers to see if this request could be accommodated and that a written response on this matter would be emailed to all Members of the Committee.


That the amendments to the work programme be approved and that the Chair of the Highways and Transport Committee seek officers advice with regard to the request to extend the 30 June 2022 deadline in relation to the approval of ward member budget schemes.
